Brian Scott Campbell
Before coming to UNT College of Visual Arts & Design, Brian Scott Campbell served as an Instructor and Thesis Advisor in Graduate Studies at the Columbus College of Art and Design. Prior to that, Campbell lived in Joshua Tree, California and taught Drawing at the University of Redlands, as well as the College of the Desert in Palm Desert, California. Campbell has also lived and worked previously in Santa Barbara, California, and Brooklyn, New York.
Campbell’s paintings and drawings are black and white monochrome. The work displays a penchant for the personified still-life and often features masked figures in motion. Campbell thinks of his work as a reflection upon our strange but urgent longings, and the absurdity of contemporary life.
Campbell has exhibited widely including shows at Dutton, New York; Fredericks & Freiser, New York; Asya Geisberg Gallery, New York; Jeff Bailey Gallery, New York; Metropolitan Art Society, Beirut (Curated by Suzanne Geiss Co. New York); Zevitas Marcus, Los Angeles; Ms Barbers; Los Angeles; 9800 S Sepulveda; Los Angeles (Curated by Shanaynay, Paris); David Shelton Gallery, Houston; Circuit 12; Dallas, TX; David Risley Gallery, Copenhagen; NADA New York and Untitled Miami Beach Art Fairs among others. Awards and residencies include Atlantic Center for the Arts Residency with artist Dana Schutz; a McColl Center for Visual Art Full Fellowship; a Vermont Studio Center Fellowship; The Artist in the Marketplace Program, Bronx Museum, New York, and the DNA Summer Residency Program in Provincetown, MA (Organized by Freight and Volume Gallery, New York). Campbell’s work has been reviewed in Modern Painters / Blouin ArtInfo; Whitehot Magazine; Los Angeles Times; Contemporary Art Review LA, The Huffington Post; Hyperallergic; Two Coats of Paint; It’s Nice That (London); and i-D Magazine / Vice, amongst others.
